  • Publication number: 20210150421
    Abstract: A dynamic queue management system includes a computing platform having a hardware processor and a memory storing a software code. The hardware processor executes the software code to receive queue enrollment data identifying a first guest and a first attraction, determine whether the first guest is enrolled in a second queue for a second attraction, and assign the first guest to one of multiple groups seeking admission to the first attraction based on whether the first guest is enrolled in the second queue. The software code further obtains a current occupancy state of the first attraction, determines an attendance period corresponding to an average duration of attendance at the first attraction by previous guests, and identifies one of the groups for admission to the first attraction based on the number of guests in the group, the current occupancy state of the first attraction, and the attendance period of the attraction.

  • Patent number: 11009843
    Abstract: A power supply control system includes a power generator for providing a signal to a load. The power generator includes a power controller controlling a power amplifier. The power generator includes an adaptive controller for varying the output signal controlling the power amplifier. The adaptive controller compares an error between a measured output and a predicted output to determine adaptive values applied to the power controller. The power generator also includes a sensor that generates an output signal that is digitized and processed. The sensor signal is mixed with a constant K. The constant K is varied to vary the processing of the sensor output signal. The value K may be commutated based on the phase, frequency, or both phase and frequency, and the bandwidth of K is determined by coupled power in the sensor output signal.

  • Publication number: 20210142423
    Abstract: Trip classifying systems and methods include one or more servers communicatively coupled with a mobile device, one or more data stores, and a trip classifying device. The trip classifying device includes a housing, a processor, a wireless communication module, a speaker, a business selector, a personal selector, and a microphone. In response to a signal received from a mobile phone indicating that the trip has begun, the trip classifying device provides a notification to the driver to classify the trip. In response to receiving the user selection of the business selector, the system automatically initiates an audio recording for the driver to dictate a business purpose for the trip. The audio recording is transmitted to the mobile phone which initiates transcription and later displays the transcription on a user interface of the mobile phone. The trip classifying device may have no trip classifying selectors except the business and personal selectors.

  • Publication number: 20210136164
    Abstract: A system that creates and automatically builds one or more entity models that are derived from communication-based information received over a network. Building the entity models uses machine learning, a user interface, a sentiment analyzer, a communication monitoring agent and an automated bot. Bots are created based on a bot template. New communication-based information is analyzed and processed to improve the entity model, to keep the bot up-to-date, and to update other services and products that the entity relies on. The system enables a business to cluster other entities together to assist in identifying competitors. The system provides analytical information about how users journey through an entity model. The system automatically maintains listings such as frequently asked questions. The system works in a networked environment, which may be a distributed network.
